Registrations were closed for a long time because of forum spam, but I have re-opened them on a trial basis.

The forum administrator (chris dot waigl at gmail dot com) reserves the right to request users to plausibly demonstrate that they are real people with an interest in the topic of eggcorns. Otherwise they may be removed with no further justification. Likewise, accounts that have not been used for posting may be removed.

Thanks for your understanding.

Two techy matters

One is that coming to this site seems to provoke my antivirus (Microsoft Security Essentials) into telling me that I’m infected with


It cleans it up and nothing else happens until the next time. I dare say it’s a false alarm but I have no way of checking if other antiviruses have the same reaction.

Another is that there is some techy stuff at the very top of the page that says

Warning: touch() [function.touch]: Unable to create file /tmp/preview/ because No such file or directory in /home/lascribe/public_html/eggcorns/forum/footer.php on line 215

Which doesn’t bother me in the slightest, except aesthetically.

On the plain in Spain where it mainly rains.

Re: Two techy matters

Thanks for the note, Juan. Definitely beyond my paygrade, but I’ve informed the boss.
